I just picked this downbeat kit up from the 2nd owner who bought it in the late 60s. He knew what he had, but wanted to sell it quickly and let it go for just about half of the going price of only the snare. I don't know of I'll ever find another deal this good...

It's a 20, 12, 14 with the 14 COB supra. The rack tom is hiding behind the floor tom in that picture. It's actually factory black wrap, which seems to be pretty rare from that era. Looks like the kit is from October of '59 with natural interiors. I'm cleaning up the 12" right now.

Congratulations. Fantastic score! I own a trans badge Downbeat kit in black diamond pearl that I bought many years ago from the second owner. They are wonderful sounding drums and I'll never sell them.
